A wry description of four very different situations that show this author to have the skill t set up characters and situations that are unexpected but he does this with a good empathy The laying on of Hands, The clothes they stood up in, Father Farther Burning Bright, The lady in the Van. Personally I think the order of these four stories is of interest but I would have put down the whole book after teh first story which was too lade with Religion and fervor. Quite glad I persisted however

Heard good things about Bennett, but this wasn't for me. Maybe I'm not a comedy book type of person as it didn't appeal and didn't seem funny. ( )

I got given this for an easter present and i really enjoyed reading it as much i would have enjoyed eating a chocolate egg. All four stories are beautifuuly written in a witty insightful way i enjoyed the second one the most. Many a giggle will be had when reading this and all 4 are original and interesting, sometimes a bit cringing but always vivid and intriguing. ( )
